How asset owners can address climate change
Understanding Net Zero
09 Mar 2021 : 03:30-04:30 PM
In 2019, the UK set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. More recently, we have seen several large pension funds announce more ambitious net zero targets for their investment strategies, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) launched its net zero framework, and the formation of the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative.
For investors looking to address climate risk, setting objectives is a sensible step - but what does net zero really mean? How can progress be measured? And how can a portfolio be aligned with a net zero goal?
Join our webinar as we explore these issues alongside two leading practitioners: Daisy Streatfield - Investor Practices Programme Director of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, who will discuss IIGCC’s Paris Aligned Investment Initiative and key recommendations of the Net Zero Investment Framework; and Henrik Wold Nilsen - Senior Portfolio Manager of Storebrand, who will discuss setting transparent and measurable targets and metrics.
